Review: Rubbabu 3D Animal Shape Sorter

 Puzzles are always fun for kids.  Rubbabu 3D Animal Shape Sorter  has good size pieces that are both soft and have different colors. Personally through I can not stand the feels of the pieces. It is crush velvet which I absolutely hate touching. However, both our kiddos don’t mind it at all.  I like to have them pretend that the board is like a zoo with the tree being the middle of the zoo. While our youngest can focus on putting the pieces where they go and learning the animals; our oldest can focus on learning directions. For example: what animal is west of the tree.  It’s very sweet to see them take turns and for big sis to help lil sis. I feel this puzzle has just the right number of pieces. I do wish that the animals had faces but the silhouettes ok. To my surprise even though our youngest is 8 months she was able to place some of the pieces herself. I’d recommend this as a great first puzzle for the kiddos. Another prefect pick by  Timberdoodle .

Review: Pixel Baby

Pixel Baby  reminds me of another game that we had got from  Timberdoodle  called Small Pegs . This comes with many different cards that children can complete by putting the 3 shape pixels in the correct spot.  First, they can just practice putting the pixels on the board for some good old fine motor skills. Then the littles can start to match up there colors to the correct spots and finally they can learn some basic shapes while completing the different cards.  Our oldest wanted to help little sis with this game. She showed her how to place the pieces and explained colors and shapes to her. This is another game that can grow with the kiddos as they learn the basics.  I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who has a child that is ready to learn the basics and keep them occupied for quite some time. The pieces are nice and big and very well made. I love when we have items like this that can be used over and over as well as be passed down to use again with siblings. 

Review: Tactile Search and Math

 Absolutely love this for the younger kids. What better way to show a bunch of different textures a then by a hands-on toy. Tactile Search and Match , which I got from Timberdoodle , is big enough for the littles not to choke on. Our 8 month old plays with these all throughout and doesn’t seem to get bored at all.  There are 9 different rubber textures that your child will be introduced, too. They are meant to match them to the correct tactile spots on the board. What I like is that not only are they getting sensory play but they get an introduction to colors as well. So, even if a child doesn’t like the feel of the objects they can sort them by the bright colors.  I really appreciate that the pieces are bigger so that even young kiddos like mine can play with something that she learn a lot from. Even if you take the pieces away and just let them play with board itself they can fell the textures and see the bright colors. This is also another great hands-on activity that both our girls

Review: Haba Palette of Pegs

 Now that we have two kiddos I’m always looking for a way for them to play together. As a homeschool teacher I also want their activities to be educational.  Haba Palette of Pegs  hits both the check boxes. What is really great about this “game” is that they can learn many different things with one activity.  They get lots of fine motor skills while trying to place the colorful circles on the cylinder pegs. While placing the matching circles they learn some of their colors. And by doing these “game” together the girls learn sharing, taking turns and great to bond over something both fun and educational.  Our oldest was all about showing which circle goes where. While our youngest even though she is only 8 months got to try and place the parts together. Since this activity does have smaller parts I made sure to watch over them so that our youngest wouldn’t choke on the pieces.  We got this from Timberdoodle , of course. They have so many amazing things for not only homeschool but also a

Custom Work

 Have crochet things you love but they aren’t apart of the items I sell? No worries! I accept custom commissions. As long as I have (or can find) a pattern I can make whatever you like. Sometimes I’m limited; for example characters that trademarked or copyrighted I cannot sell. Just email (, or ask on Instagram or FaceBook . I’ll get back with you as soon as I can. Please keep in mind crochet and cross stitch items take time to make as both are entirely handmade by me. I do have a queue sometimes so the sooner you get on the list the better!
